12 track album
Rewarding. Rich. Fresh. Electronic beat production from Fake Fever.
A refreshing collage of funky beats, found sounds, and late night jammers. The appropriately named opener, “Golden Gun”, sounds like a brilliant rework of Lulu’s classic 1974 Bond theme song crossed with an intense mission scene from some never-before-seen bonus level from the N64 classic Goldeneye. ”Junkman” segues near perfectly and bursts with chopped Motown vocals and relentless beats. The album’s core contains two heavy rhythm tracks, the Afro-beat banger “High Brow” (pay attention Clams Casino fans) and “Flyer Hide”, one of the year’s most interesting dance tracks filled with everything great instrumental music should sound like in 2013. On "One-Piece", icicles shimmer in an otherworldly interstellar landscape with chimes and beats that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Teebs record. ”Persian Blue” sounds utopian. Plentiful found sounds and steady beats make “Exuma” one of the more standout tracks. “New Ninety” is tropical island paradise and could easily find a home in a myriad of cinematic sequences. Fan Fiction is a debut collection brimming with absorbing work from an up and coming beatsmith from the United States.
For fans of Teebs, Bahwee, Lapalux, Lone / Kona Triangle and that new DJ Rashad.
